  • My son has ADHD and was close to 4 after a loooong road potty training. My therapist told me he doesn't have the attention span to wait for a bigger prize or to earn a prize later, that he needed to be instantly rewarded right away with a sticker, candy, or small quarter machine, dollar store, party favor type toy. I about went broke, but we finally did get him potty trained.
